7 Ways to Wear a Bomber Jacket This Fall
Stylish outfit ideas ahead
Have you heard? Bomber jackets are trending big time. Hopefully you’ve gotten on board and bought one, but maybe you’re still wondering how to style it. Do you wear jeans? Could you do a dress? And, gah, what about shoes? Consider these seven simple and incredibly stylish options.
With Black Jeans and White Sneakers
Aside from the bomber, we’re going to assume you have every other piece of this outfit already in your closet, making it an easy choice for those days when you can’t be bothered to think too much about what you’re wearing.
With a Black T-Shirt and Black Pants
When in doubt, wear all one color. When really in doubt, make that color black. An all-noir outfit is pretty much foolproof and always polished. Throw a cool black jacket atop a simple T-shirt and trousers and add slightly pointy-toed pumps to dress it up a little (or stick to black flats or loafers if that’s more your style).
With a White T-Shirt and Raw-Hem Jeans
Noticing a theme? Simple tees are pretty much a bomber’s best friend. That’s because the jacket should be the statement piece here, and a plain shirt is the best way to highlight your outerwear. Slip into a pair of trendy raw-hem jeans and you’re basically a street-style star.
With an A-Line Miniskirt and Chain-Link Bag
Bombers are a little easier to style with pants and jeans but also look incredibly cool with skirts and even dresses. Case in point: this button-front A-line denim mini, which, as it gets colder, can totally be worn with tights.
With a Casual Black Dress and White Sneakers
Comfortable, easy and chic. What more could you want from an outfit? This pairing is a no-brainer, since everyone has a little black dress, and most likely has a pair of white sneaks, which keep the vibe relaxed. See this, learn from this and wear this.
With a Striped T-Shirt and Neck Scarf
Speaking of closet staples, a striped tee should totally be one. Worn with snug-fitting jeans and an on-trend neck scarf (this could be anything from a bandanna to a small silk square), the result is totally fun with a hint of Parisian influence.
With a Striped Button-Down and Wide-Leg Jeans
Horizontal stripes are great, but don’t neglect vertical ones either. Try a button-down paired with comfy wide-leg jeans and simple sandals (or mid-calf booties come colder weather).
